NFL 2015 Mock Draft Round 1
Selections 1-16

Drafttek.com uses a computer model to simulate a 7-round 2015 NFL Mock Draft. Each team has an analyst who supplies data on 2015 NFL Draft team needs. The team needs are matched up against a ranked list of draft prospects(aka "Big Board") in order to generate each selection in our 2015 NFL Mock Draft.



November 3, 2014 - 2015 Mock Draft: 2 Rounds

Some teams that started the season hot are now stumbling (Dallas, San Diego) while other teams who were written off early are heating up (Pittsburgh, New England). Below is our latest 2015 two round NFL draft projection.

Our selection order at this point of the draft cycle is based largely on power ranking. As the regular season winds to a it's final weeks, selection order will be determined by W-L record, and strength of schedule to break ties.


1 Oakland
Leonard Williams
    USC
    DE43
    Reach/Value:     +0
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
290
Alternate Pick #1
Cedric Ogbuehi
Alternate Pick #2
Brandon Scherff
The Raiders seem to have had success with the 2014 draft, with Khalil Mack atop the ProFootballFocus.com rankings for 3-4 OLBs, and Derek Carr progressing at QB. Gabe Jackson and Justin Ellis are also starting and contributing. But the Raiders are just plain undermanned at several key positions: WR, OL, DT, CB. Ideally they trade this pick for multiple Day1/Day2 selections. But should they stay put, Leonard Williams will decidely improve on the Raiders' 1.0 sack/game average. I wouldn't argue with Amari Cooper either.
2 Tampa Bay
Marcus Mariota
    Oregon
    QB
    Reach/Value:     +0
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
211
Alternate Pick #1
Jameis Winston
Alternate Pick #2
Randy Gregory
Mike Glennon's passer rating isn't all that bad at 85.3, but the Bucs haven't been able to get untracked in their Sunday battles until the 2nd half. In the last three games, the Bucs have put 61 points on the board, with just 10 coming in the first halves of those games. Marcus Mariota is one of the most dynamic players in NCAA football. He's thrown 24 TDs versus just 1 pick (through games of 10/25), and he's also a threat with his feet who will keep defenses honest with 40 ypg and 5 TD to date.
3 NY Jets
Cedric Ogbuehi
    Texas A&M
    LOT
    Reach/Value:     +0
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
300
Alternate Pick #1
Vic Beasley
Alternate Pick #2
Brandon Scherff
Given the moribund QB play from the Jets, you'd think that that position would be the focus of a high-round pick. It could easily be, but just maybe the Jets should see what Geno Smith and Michael Vick could do if they had a fighting chance in the backfield. In week 8 the Bills were there before Jet QBs had a chance to set up. With the exception of C Nick Mangold, all the other Jets offensive linemen grade negatively, per ProFootballFocus.com. As much as Brick is paid, ($11.7M cap - highest on the team) they need more production.
4 Jacksonville
Vic Beasley
    Clemson
    OLB34
    Reach/Value:     +0
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
235
Alternate Pick #1
Randy Gregory
Alternate Pick #2
Dante Fowler Jr
Jacksonville ranks 3rd in the league in sacks but oddly enough they rank 30th in pass defense. The front four is solid; however, the linebackers leave a lot to be desired. Rookie Telvin Smith has flashed brilliance but there's still not enough speed or playmaking ability coming from that unit. Clemson Linebacker Vic Beasley would add what's been missing from that porous defense.
5 Tennessee
Jameis Winston
    Florida St
    QB
    Reach/Value:     -1
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
228
Alternate Pick #1
Landon Collins
Alternate Pick #2
Brandon Scherff
The Jake Locker era is officially over in Tennessee. Zach Mettenberger, last year's sixth-round pick, is being given the opportunity to showcase himself, but the Titans will likely look Quarterback when April comes around. Jameis Winston has the talent of a franchise quarterback. He has a strong arm, good accuracy, and does not make many dumb decisions on the field. However, his off-the-field decision-making has shown to be his biggest flaw, and could cause Tennessee to pass.
6 Atlanta
Brandon Scherff
    Iowa
    LOT
    Reach/Value:     +1
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
315
Alternate Pick #1
Dante Fowler Jr
Alternate Pick #2
Randy Gregory
Matt Ryan sacked 17 times in 2014 . . . combine that with 44 sacks in 2013 and I question how the young man can even get out of bed, much less pass the ball! Jake Matthews will develop into a fine LOT in the NFL; however, Carimi is a revolving door at ROT. Brandon Scherff has the footwork to play LOT and the aggressiveness required for the power side. NFL defenses continue to move pass-rushers, requiring pass protection skills on both ends of the line (I believe I just got an "AMEN" from Matty Ice!)
7 Chicago
Landon Collins
    Alabama
    SS
    Reach/Value:     -1
Height:
6'0"
Weight:
215
Alternate Pick #1
Randy Gregory
Alternate Pick #2
P.J. Williams
What started out as a very promising season has turned into a nightmare. The main culprit is a secondary that couldn't hold Stephen Hawking under 100 yards. Drafting in the Top 10 is usually a bad thing, but it would be worth it to add a talent like Collins. At 6'0, 222, he is an ideal SS, but it's his ballhawking skills that have the attention of scouts. He's the complete package, and is widely considered the best of Alabama's recent run of First Round Safeties.
8 Washington
P.J. Williams
    Florida St
    CB
    Reach/Value:     -3
Height:
6'0"
Weight:
190
Alternate Pick #1
Dante Fowler Jr
Alternate Pick #2
Randy Gregory
As Chris Cooley put it, Bashaud Breeland had an "All-Time" performance on Sunday against Dez Bryant. If the fourth-round rookie performs this way consistently, the Redskins can use this pick elsewhere, but adding a fluid, dynamic CB like P.J. Williams would certainly help bolster the secondary. Williams is a polarizing player, however, as some scout believe he benefited greatly from FSU's dominant safeties in 2013.



9 Minnesota
Amari Cooper
    Alabama
    WRF
    Reach/Value:     +2
Height:
6'1"
Weight:
205
Alternate Pick #1
Dorial Green-Beckham
Alternate Pick #2
Randy Gregory
By traditional metrics, the Vikings' leading receiver, Greg Jennings, ranks 50th among WRs in receiving yards per game with 47.9 ypg. Looking at ProFootballFocus' grading system, he sits 37th out of 43 receivers with at least 400 snaps year-to-date (through Oct 31/14) --Uninspiring to say the least. The argument can be made that Cordarrelle Patterson is the #1 receiver, but he's still developing and hasn't been as nearly involved in the offense as he needs to be. In short, an upgrade is in order.
10 Carolina
Ifo Ekpre-Olomu
    Oregon
    CB
    Reach/Value:     -16
Height:
5'10"
Weight:
185
Alternate Pick #1
Randy Gregory
Alternate Pick #2
Andrus Peat
Carolina could use a lot of help in a lot of positions but you have to focus on talent in the draft. Rookie Bene Benwikere is the most talented Panther DB and needs help to solidify this Defense. And it just so happens that the most talented player on the Board, IMO, fills a huge need. Currently ranked 17th in Pass Defense, the addition of Ifo would have an immediate imact. He would start Day One and would be our best Corner for years to come. ~Erin Ford, Panthers Analyst (@PanthersDrafter)
11 NY Giants
Benardrick McKinney
    Mississippi St
    ILB
    Reach/Value:     -5
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
245
Alternate Pick #1
Randy Gregory
Alternate Pick #2
Andrus Peat
The New York Giants have not had a long-term solution at linebacker since before Amanda Bynes was a slightly off-balanced Nickelodeon star and not the completely off-script version she is today.It's time the Giants invest a high pick at ILB. Critics will claim that's not likely because it's not in the G-men's nature, but that argument could have been made about RB (David Wilson) and OL (Justin Pugh). The fact that Jon Beason is once again hurt could also push the Giants to add the highly-gifted McKinney.
12 Cleveland
Dante Fowler Jr
    Florida
    OLB34
    Reach/Value:     -1
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
261
Alternate Pick #1
Randy Gregory
Alternate Pick #2
Marcus Peters
The reinvention of the Browns is right on schedule, and I decided that addressing needs via the draft should wait, allowing the DRAFTSIM to cough up some BPA prospects that fit that roster buildout. With dynamic OLB Vic Beasley off the board, we turn to Fowler Jr., who (unlike Beasley) has no supporting cast to speak of. Fowler has great git-off the snap, and would make for a nice rotational edge rusher. Enjoy these Fowler Jr. highlights.
13 Houston
Marcus Peters
    Washington
    CB
    Reach/Value:     -1
Height:
5'11"
Weight:
193
Alternate Pick #1
Brett Hundley
Alternate Pick #2
Dorial Green-Beckham
Behind starters Johnathan Joseph (solid) and Kareem Jackson (iffy), the Texans' depth chart at CB reads as follows: A.J. Bouye, Elbert Mack, Darryl Morris, Andre Hal, and Jumal Rolle. Yep, there are some names that should be first-ballot Canton-bound . . . I go to ProFootballFocus premium defensive stats, scroll down to CB and see a whole bunch of RED! Marcus Peters has good size (6'0", 193), speed (sub 4.5), and production (following up a 2013 campaign of 55 tackles and 5 Int with 24 tackles and 3 Int to-date 2014).
14 San Francisco
Dorial Green-Beckham
    Oklahoma
    WRF
    Reach/Value:     -1
Height:
6'6"
Weight:
225
Alternate Pick #1
Shawn Oakman
Alternate Pick #2
Trae Waynes
Niner fans would be quite disappointed if they have to pick this low in the 2015 draft; nonetheless, the position will be a need along with CB. Michael Crabtree, Brandon Lloyd, and Kassim Osgood are Free Agents after this season, Anquan Boldin the following year, not to mention TE Vernon Davis. Dorial Green-Beckham, talentwise, belongs in the first round, but he's a serious character flag. He'd probably be be better off suiting up for the Sooners in 2015 to prove he can stay out of trouble .
15 Cleveland
Devin Funchess
    Michigan
    WRF
    Reach/Value:     -7
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
235
Alternate Pick #1
Trae Waynes
Alternate Pick #2
Shawn Oakman
Funchess is a WR/TE hybrid who has played outstanding ball on the train wreck that is the Michigan Wolverines. He has the speed to get vertical, makes outstanding adjustments on the ball, and wins those mano-e-mano matchups with his 6'5", 230 pound frame. Think Eric Ebron with better speed and hands. He can play the TE2 with TE Jordan Cameron for some nightmarish matchups, or play on the perimeter. Here's some eye candy.
16 St Louis
Brett Hundley
    UCLA
    QB
    Reach/Value:     +4
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
227
Alternate Pick #1
Randy Gregory
Alternate Pick #2
Andrus Peat
The biggest issue facing the Rams this coming offseason revolves around the quarterback position. Should the Rams once again place their trust in Sam Bradford and his twice-torn ACL? Will the Rams attempt to restructure the last year of his contract, converting a large part of his $12.985 million salary into incentives based on playing time? Starter Austin Davis becomes a free agent in 2015. The Rams go in a different direction with the selection of Hundley, an athletic, dual-threat passer.
